It was established by the United Nations Charter in June 1945 and began its activities in April 1946. The seat of the Court is at the Peace Palace in The Hague (Netherlands). Of the six principal organs of the United Nations, it is the only one not located in New York. The Court has a twofold role: first, to settle, in accordance with international law, legal disputes submitted to it by States (its judgments have binding force and are without appeal for the parties concerned); and, second, to give advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by duly authorized United Nations organs and agencies of the system. The Court is composed of 15 judges elected for a nine-year term by the General Assembly and the Security Council of the United Nations. Independent of the United Nations Secretariat, it is assisted by a Registry, its own international secretariat, whose activities are both judicial and diplomatic, as well as administrative. The official languages of the Court are French and English. Also known as the “World Court”, it is the only court of a universal character with general jurisdiction.Qu’est-ce que la CIJ?La CIJ est l’organe judiciaire principal de l’Organisation des Nations Unies (ONU). Elle a été instituée en juin 1945 par la Charte des Nations Unies et a entamé ses activités en avril 1946. La Cour a son siège au Palais de la Paix, à La Haye (Pays-Bas). Il convient de ne pas confondre la CIJ, juridiction uniquement ouverte aux Etats (pour la procédure contentieuse) et à certains organes et institutions du système des Nations Unies (pour la procédure consultative), avec les autres institutions judiciaires, pénales pour la plupart, établies à La Haye et dans sa proche banlieue, comme le Tribunal pénal international pour l’ex-Yougoslavie (ou TPIY, juridiction ad hoc créée par le Conseil de sécurité), la Cour pénale internationale (ou CPI, la première juridiction pénale internationale permanente, créée par traité, qui n’appartient pas au système des Nations Unies), le Tribunal spécial pour le Liban (ou TSL, organe judiciaire indépendant composé de juges libanais et internationaux qui ne relève pas des Nations Unies ni du système judiciaire libanais), ou encore la Cour permanente d’arbitrage (ou CPA, institution indépendante permettant de constituer des tribunaux arbitraux dont elle facilite le fonctionnement, conformément à la Convention de La Haye de 1899).
